Weak Initial Sequence Number

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
checks for ISN

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host seems to generate Initial Sequence Numbers (ISN) in a weak
manner which seems to solely depend on the source and dest port of the TCP
packets.

A possible hacker may exploit this flaw to establish spoofed connections to the
remote host.

The Raptor Firewall and Novell Netware are known to be vulnerable to this
flaw, although other network devices may be vulnerable as well.


Solution :

If you are using a Raptor Firewall, see

Otherwise, contact your vendor for a patch.
